- Macaw Indian ringneck and cockatiel
I have a rescue macaw who is 8 got her when she was 7 and the home she was in mistreated her, she would get yelled at her beak flicked when she bit and so on. She's a very sweet bird though and loves attention loves to be pet and on you, but she bites without warning and I'm talking about the bites where I have to pry her beak off, she also mouths but very hard not breaking skin, but it does hurt. How can I get her to stop doing this?? I feel bad because she wants me to hold her so bad but I am not comfortable with that so instead I use a Tperch. Her diet is fresh foods and nuts, gets 12 hours of sleep, no touching on wings back etc. Target trained, knows how to step up, has a lot of toys and I mean a lot.
